HARDERWIJK, The Netherlands, 5 September 2007
After taking a much deserved break, Two Tribes would like to announce that Toki Tori is returning to the videogame industry.
"It is hard work, being the star of your own videogame", says Toki Tori, "Most people don't realize this, but sometimes it can become just too much to deal with, so I decided to take a break."
Toki Tori's first appearance was in 2001 when his self-titled debut game was released for the Nintendo Game Boy Color. It met with praise from the videogames press, most notably for Toki Tori's performance as well as the game's design.
Details on how and when Toki Tori will be returning cannot be made public yet at this point, but Toki Tori's management at Two Tribes would like to state that it is very pleased with this recent development.
Martijn Reuvers, Managing Director at Two Tribes says: "We are glad Toki Tori has agreed to return. He seems to be in great shape and we have big plans for him in the near future."
